Candidates for admission into the Freshman Class are examined 
in the following or equivalent studies : 

English Grammar, Geography, Arithmetic, Algebra (through four 
chapters Davies' Bourdon), Bullion's Latin Grammar, Andrew's 
Latin Exercises, Csesar (four books), Virgil (six books), Cicero's 
Orations, Bullion's Greek Grammar and Lessons, Bullion's Greek 
Header, Latin Prosody and Mythology. 

Candidates for a higher standing are examined in the same studies 
and also in that part of the Course gone over by the class to which 
they may desire admission. 

All students must bring satisfactory testimonials of good moral 
character, and those from other Colleges, certificates of dismission in 
good standing. 

Thorough acquaintance with the studies required for admission, 
is indispensably necessary in order to receive the full benefit of the 
subsequent College course. It is found by experience that students 
imperfectly prepared for the class they enter, are embarassed in their 
further progress and seldom repair the want of proper preparatory 
study.

will be attended to during the first three years of the Classical Course. 
Dictation, Declamation and Composition in the French and Span- 
ish Languages will be attended to throughout the whole Scientific 
Course. Chemistry is taught by recitation and lecture, accompanied 
with experiments. Regular lectures will be delivered by the Presi- 
dent and Professors, upon subjects connected with their several de- 
partments. It is believed that the alternation of familiar Lecture, 
with the ordinay Recitation, is highly calculated to elicit the atten- 
tion and insure the success of the student.

Other charges the same as in College. In addition to the regular 
charges, a matriculation fee of $5 is paid by each Student on first 
becoming a member of any regular College Class. College charges 
must be paid semi-annually in advance. 

Board and washing can be had at the Steward's Hall, or in pri- 
vate families, for from $12 to $15 per month. 



PRACTICAL INSTRUCTION. 

Knowledge without application is unproductive. One great object 
of the Instructor should be to make the scholar practical as well as 
theoretical. Much is left for the teacher to supply which is not 
found in the test books. There is much valuable information which 
can only be obtained by oral instruction, by experiment and practice. 
With this view, all Recitation and Lecture will be rather practical 
than theoretical, and the Theodolite, Compass, Sextant, Telescope, 
etc., will be employed by the Professor in actual observations, and 
surveys, thus properly enforcing and illustrating Mathematical and 
Philosophical principles by application. 

The course of study in the various departments, is thought to be 
full and thorough. The object of Collegiate instruction is not to 
complete either a practical or professional education ; but to lay the 
foundation of a character fitted to appear with honor and usefulness 
in any sphere of life — to bring out and properly balance the powers 
of the mind, thus fitting the individual for the successful prosecution 
of the learned professions or higher departments of business. 

LIBRARY. 

The College Library contains about 3000 well selected volumes, of 
both ancient and modern literature. The importance of such a 
library to the reading student, during his Collegiate Course, is too ob- 
vious to need remark. The library is accessible to all students. 

APPARATUS AND CABINET. 
The College possesses a valuable set of Philosophical, Astronomical, 
and Chemical Apparatus, and also a well selected Mineralogical and 
Geological Cabinet. The apparatus includes a new Reflecting Tele-

scope (focal distance, 7 feet), a Theodolite, Sextant, Compass, Chro- 
nometer, Atwood's Machine, Whirling Tables, Electrical Machine, 
Air Pump, Steam Engine, various combinations of the Mechanical 
Powers, Batteries, Chemical Tests, etc., sufficient for a thorough and 
extended course of observations and experiments. 
LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are two regular Literary Societies connected with the Insti- 
tution. These are of great utility to young men acquiring a lib- 
eral education— improving them in the art of public speaking, 
making them in some degree familiar with the proceedings of delib- 
erative bodies, and in cultivating systematic business habits. Each 
society has a convenient Hall and a well selected Library— about 
1600 volumes each. 

There is also connected with the Institution a Society, the object 
of which is to aid its members in the acquisition of the French lan- 
guage. The exercises of this, the Lafayette Society, are conducted 
exclusively in French, and they have, we believe, proved eminently 
successful in the promotion of the object for which the Society was 

established. 

REPORTS. 

Bi-monthly Reports are transmitted to the parent or guardian of 
each student, showing his scholarship and general deportment. 
PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT. 

In this Department regular hours of Study and Recitation are 
observed under the immediate supervision of the Principal. In other 
respects the members of this Department are subject to the same 
general regimen and requisitions as the College student.

of the expenditures of such student, and with whom shall be deposit- 
ed such a sum of money as his parent or guardian may think proper.

estly recommended and requested. 

N. B.— The requirements of Chapter XIII above, will be strictly 
enforced. 

GENERAL INFORMATION. 

This College was taken under the patronage of the M. E. Church 
South, in 1845, and has been constantly growing in importance and 
usefulness. It is located in the village of Jackson, about twelve 
miles from Bayou Sara, in a grove of pine, magnolia, oak and beech. 
The location is remarkable for its beautiful woodlands, its bland and 
delightful atmosphere, its pure water, and its unrivalled healthfulness. 

The government is mild and parental, but consistent and firm ; if 
a student is found to be incorrigibly vicious or idle, he is at once 
dismissed. The punishments consist of demerit marks, private re- 
proof, public reproof, and suspension. The rewards consist of merit 
marks, and public honors on the day of Commencement. So that 
by every incentive— by appeals to all the nobler principles of the 
nature— by affectionate entreaty and friendly counsel— by the hope 
of distinction and the fear of disgrace-the Faculty endeavor to 
maintain order and the purest morality.
